"Jenkins's address, "A Brief History of Transmedia Worlds," focused on "world-building" described as "the process of designing a fictional universe that will sustain franchise development, [and is] sufficiently detailed to enable many different stories to emerge but coherent enough so that each story feels like it fits with the others."

"Flipping the Model": The Future of Social Engagement Strategy

"As the field of documentary outreach matures from one where stories merely "raise awareness" to one where they may seed direct action, hear from three world-renowned impact producers and social engagement strategists, Lina Srivastava, Jennifer Macarthur, and Patricia Finneran, about the need and benefits to proactively plan and execute impact strategies for social issue films during production (not after), how engagement is a separate and distinct skill from outreach, the current state of social impact strategy, and how to pay for it."

In one sentence: tune strategies alongside the film development and production

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"This session (...) looked at the relationship between technology and storytelling, it’s function within the creation of non-linear narratives and the continued role of “old” storytelling telling methods." I-Docs

 

"Each technological change in filmmaking has influenced the way stories are crafted. Adapting to these new technologies has repeatedly been presented as a revolutionary new way of storytelling. The first films shot with handheld cameras allowed unprecedented access to events, and later, digital cameras made it cheaper to produce films. Now, with opportunities offered by new media, stories can be told in a non-linear fashion through different platforms, or made interactive. Do these new technologies truly revolutionize the way we document the world, or do they merely change the relationship between the maker and the viewer? Do the old methods of storytelling still apply to interactive or non-linear documentaries?

The Futures of Nonfiction Storytelling - MIT TechTV

The Futures of Nonfiction Storytelling - MIT TechTV | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

Interesting panel held at MIT in November 2011.

 

From their experience, the four experts explain how technologies have brought to light new problems (eg, crowdsourcing used to identify dissidents in Iran), and new forms of project (eg providing a mosaic of experiences rather than creating separate groups opposed between them).

 

And if the panel is introduced by the moderator Jonathan Taplin with "The Crowd is Often Wrong" ... then it must be seen.

Driving Change - Sheffield Doc/Fest 2013

Several highly experienced and passionate professionals will offer invaluable tips on how to get over tech (yes tech!) barriers which are stopping you from managing your media asset, growing your business and ensuring your shows have better chances of being shown around the world.
mirmilla's insight:

This panel is dedicated to technology from the point of view of producers and distributors 
Beyond the limited pure technology references, what is interesting is that they all agree on one thing: the need to design a film keeping the audience in mind and the search of the audience before the film is finished.

As if to say that the holistic approach always trump.
